Impressions: Kaguya-Sama Love is War Episode 2

I forgot to say this in my previous episode’s post but the opening song feels VERY retro! I feel like I’m watching a 90s series. It’s a fun song though so I don’t mind listening to it… over and over again.

There’s nothing much to say about this episode. It still uses the same formula as the previous one, with the whole episode being divided into three segments. So in these two episodes, we managed to cover 6 chapters of the manga! Well not exactly. The anime did skip quite a few chapters of the manga but it mainly skipped the skits that make zero progress to the story. In this episode, there is at least some progress. For one, more characters are introduced and I tell you, the new ‘Kabe-DOWN’ couple is hilarious from start to finish. I’d love to see them more.

Land of The Lustrous: What’s With The Ending!??

Phos is Life.gif

The general premise of this anime is about these crystalline organisms called gems which inhabits the world. These organisms are actually immortal sparkling valuable jewels living on an island and are always fighting the Lunarians, another species that inhabits the world in which their only purpose is to attack the gems, break them and take them to ‘the moon’ for decoration. This series is basically about the gems fighting and surviving the attacks from the Lunarians for millennials.

It’s been a long time since I actually intended to watch this series. The main reason I want to watch this is obviously because of the gorgeous 3D animation which is pretty much non-existent anywhere else, at least in the anime industry. The scene that pretty much sold me to the anime is the scene where Diamond is running at night under the moonlight. It’s just so beautiful!

This Art Club Has a Problem Episode 1: The First Joke, Hairstyle and Hair Colour

cutesy usami

Yomu started a WordPress collaboration project about reviewing every episode of an anime called ‘This Art Club Has a Problem’. The twist here is that we can choose from a number of themes Yomu has listed for every episode so that different people would have very different approach to the anime. It’s a pretty awesome idea!

I was a bit hesitant to join this collab but decided to do it anyway because what could happen? I wanted to try and be a bit critical and analytical than I usually am so watching an anime with a very specific theme is one way to do it. Yomu’s collaboration projects gives me the opportunity for me to try. Thank you for starting this project, Yomu! Also, you are still very welcomed to be involved in this collab.

Well then, let’s begin.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War First Impressions

Brain War 6.png

The awaited anime of the season finally aired. This anime is basically about two people named Kaguya and Miyuki liking each other but don’t want to confess or even admit their feelings because of their own ego. To them, whoever confesses or even implies a confession is the loser between the couple. So they execute their elaborated plans to lure the other person to accidentally imply a confession. It’s a battle of brains with a comedic twist to it.

Why is it Kuroko no Basket and not Kagami no Basket?

kuroko ignite pass

When I first watched this anime, I always wondered why the title is Kuroko no Basket instead of Kagami no Basket or any other character names in the anime. This is because Kagami is always in the spotlight. He’s the character that is improving and evolving every single match whereas Kuroko is just there to either relay information about the Generation of Miracles or to enhance Kagami’s ability even more. Kuroko really doesn’t look like the main character in the anime. So I find it quite weird for the title to be his name instead of the more prominent and influenced Kagami.

I got the answer now though. The answer is this anime really is about Kuroko. The overarching plot is about him improving and realizing his flaws ever so slowly that it took almost two seasons before he basically fully develops. All the other characters, while having their own arc, is not as important as Kuroko’s arc.

Four Years Mark: The Only 2018 Anime That I Watched

Fireworks
Happy anniversary to me! This blog is now four years old. Yes relatively, I can be called a veteran now in terms of how long I’ve been sticking around. However, in terms of actual posts, meh… Inconsistent content is kinda my brand now lol but I’ve been active for 6 months now so I hope I can continue to post regularly for at least another 6 months.

As I did in the past years, I will celebrate my anniversary by writing about shows that came out this year that I actually watched. For some reason that I’m unsure of, I don’t watch newer anime that much and I especially don’t watch seasonal anime. So can I fit ALL 2018 shows that I watched this year into one post? Yes, yes I can cause it’s only like 10 shows… Let’s begin.
